"Vampire Academy 2" Seeks Crowd Funding

There's no way to avoid the fact - this year's film adaptation of the young adult novel series "Vampire Academy" was a bomb. The first film adaptation of Richelle Mead's popular series of novels pulled in a worldwide gross of just $15 million.

Nevertheless, fans have been holding out hope that the second book, "Frostbite," could make it to the big screen one day. Now it seems they might get their wish.

The producing team behind the first film have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to get the film made. They say they have successfully funded the majority of the movie, but to get a green light they need to raise $1.5 million.

The campaign launched just over a week ago and is 11% ($171,000) on the way towards its goal. If the film gets funded, a six-week shoot is expected to take place in Europe or Australia. Piers Ashworth penned the script for the follow-up, but there's no word on whether director Mark Waters or any of the original cast will return.
